I'm moving into a property in Portreath in Cornwall shortly, and when I look for broadband offers, it says FTTC is available but there is no capacity. PlusNet told me this originally, but it's been confirmed by BT and also by TalkTalk who's website gives the best explanation of the lot - with "Fibre is available for your home, but high demand in your area means we can't bring it to you right now. It's worth checking back every now and then as demand can change."
The BT wholesale checker on https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com says there is a "waiting list". I can see in other forum posts that forum members have been able to provide information about how long the wait might be...so in the hope someone can do the same, or some tips on how I might be able to move things along...it says

My current provider (PlusNet) are offering me the option of a 4Mbps connection or a £100 connection fee. Would people on here with more experience than me think this slow connection is worth taking? Can they charge me a cancellation fee if I'm moving to a premises where they can't provide me a similar product that I signed up for?
